Is there a way to search for individuals with multiple sets of parents?
Thanks in advance.
I believe you should be able to identify them by using the Verify the Data tool
Tools > Utilities > Verify the Data
The column Configure… option for the Person Views includes a “Number of Parents” column.
However, sorting on this column shows only People with parent counts of 0, 1, & 2. [Only the PRIMARY family is included in this count.]
Are you trying to identify an error condition where a child has been mistakenly included in several families? Or is it something else?
Note that a feature request was filed in February to add columns for Biological Partner1/father & Partner2/mother columns.
Although it is nice feedback to have that in the People View, I think it might be more ‘actionable’ to have addon filter <count> Rules for Families & Relationships. Hopefully, where you can specify the relationship.
For instance, a Rule that finds People with a <count> of “biological” Partner1/father greater than “1” finds an obvious error. (Although to correct the problem, you’d run a 2-stage filter. First to find the Persons, then find the fathers of such persons. Because merging is a pain when you have to remember which persons, out of thousands, to select.)
On the other hand, you might want to find the perfectly valid (although tragic) case of <count> of “foster” father greater than 5.
I just submitted a pull to add a filter Multiple Parents created by modifying the multiple marriage filter.
Great, this will help everyone identify possible issues with Multiple Parents.
In my case, I have many people with multiple parents and there is no issue. It depends on how you manage your tree.
